This book contains a collection of speeches that Amma gave in India between 1990 and 1999. As Amma reveals the truths of life in the light of spirituality and in a manner unassailable by logic, the reader is given not only a fresh view of life, but is inspired to live according to the universal principles that Amma explains in such a crystal clear way. Like a mother talking to her child, Amma rings profound principles to light through the simplest of words. In this book we are given compelling answers to the numerous questions that most of us have asked or have wanted to ask at one time or another. The reader will find that a few of the speeches contain the same examples or stories. These rare repetitions have been left as they are, because the examples are so beautiful and fit so marvelously into the context of the text, and because the editors didn’t want to tamper with Amma’s speeches in any way. Every sentence uttered by Amma helps us to understand the ultimate aim of life, and reveals paths to the realization of that goal. Amma’s words guide and encourage us towards a truly full and meaningful life.
